The Snowman Assassinated By Fibreglass Mittens

A limerick written by me       [N ]

Is something no maiden should see       [F ]

It's bound to offend       [N ]

And bring to an end       [F ]

Our banter and gay repartee       [Beefy ]

A poem should properly rhyme       [N ]

So let's call this a lime, not a line       [F ]

The rhythm should flow       [N ]

Just ask E.A. Poe       [F ]

When waltzing in 7-8 time       [N ]

An ode should not be orotund       [F ]

Pretension should always be shunned       [N ]

One should keep it terse       [F ]

The essence of verse       [N ]

Harsh critics then will be stunned       [F ]

Your scansion is woefully bad       [N ]

You should be impaled by Count Vlad       [F ]

Dissected in two       [N ]

By a drunken emu       [F ]

And then all the world will be glad       [Beefy ]
